- May 2, 2012I would make sure the tank is full by following the initial fill
instructions..Turn the toggle switch to the right and then press the single
and double half-cup buttons at the same time. That will start the fill and
will stop when it's full.. Flip the switch back to the left..
The steam comes right from the top of the boiler, and the hot water off the
bottom, and does not go thru the flowmeter. The flowmeter is only used when
"dosing" a cup.

pressure in the boiler.. Assuming it is full of water and you haven't burnt

installation instructions in the manual. It seems that there's water in the
tank and it's heating fine, but when I turn the steam or hot water knobs...
well.. nothing really happens at all.
I'm not sure of service providers in my area or if I'm looking at needing to
replace a pump... or maybe it's something simple that I'm overlooking
because I haven't worked with a machine like this.
If there's anything anyone out there can do to help me out, I'd be very
